Abstract

An optical resonator simulation code based on the idea of a partially coherent optical field has been developed and used to optimize the design parameters of an unstable resonator with a stable core. The resonator was intended for use with low-gain, large-bore lasers, such as the chemical oxygen–iodine laser (COIL). First the design parameters of the resonator were optimized by the simulation code; then a set of mirrors was fabricated for a small-scale COIL. A 14-W output with M2 = 29 was obtained. The experimentally obtained results were in good agreement with calculations.
